This source is the same as the historic recordings of the Grateful Dead on the same dates (08-05-71 & 08-06-71), and is considered among some of the very best live audience recordings of the early 1970's. There are no soundboard recordings circulating for these shows. A particularly good show, 08-06-71 features some fantastic slide work from Jerry Garcia. He roars and he soars. The band is firing on all cylinders.
A first SHN set of this recording was made in January, 2002. Recently (Nov. 2003), the missing Honky Tonk Women was found and added to the set. It was taken from an AUDMR>?>R source. Cross faded in at 03:22 of d2t09 (Sweet Lovin' One).
John Dawson - rhythm guitar, vocals
David Nelson - lead guitar, vocals
